An 8-year-old boy got a stern talking-to before this week after he took his mum’s Volkswagen for a joyride on the German autobahn, but after pulling the stunt – hitting speeds of 180 kph (112 miles ) – he has been put into emotional counseling.
Dortmund authorities said on Friday the grade-schooler stole the keys into the Golf about midnight and drove out of his hometown Soest into Dortmund, about 50 km (30 miles) away.
Police say the other driver reported the kid driving at high rates in town, stating”red lights and driving regulations didn’t appear to interest” him. Nobody was hurt, but the Golf was severely damaged.
